About MH Consulting & Services

The MH Team takes a communicative approach based on solid psychology principles, to ensure every candidate placement is a great, long-lasting fit.

The MH Story ...

Managing Director Maria Ho is passionate about empowering Early Childhood Organisations to find candidates who make the greatest impact on the business.

After spending more than a decade of working in childcare and recruitment, Maria repeatedly saw service managers struggle with anxiety and stress about finding the right candidates to work in leadership roles with the children and families under their care.

She decided to combine her Psychology degree with her experience in recruiting to create MH Consulting & Services. Her goal is to remove the stress of recruiting new staff.

By working hard and incorporating an innovative approach to find the best fit for every childcare role – MH Consulting & Services empowers Early Childhood Services to do what they were made for – making an impact on children, families and the future.

The MH Vision

Every Early Childhood Service has the potential to make a profound positive impact on the lives of children, families and society. We help early childhood directors make that difference by ensuring each role is filled by the right candidates.

Unique Recruitment Advantages

We DON’T just place any available candidate, just to get the job signed off. Instead, we use formal psychology principles to ensure the best possible candidate fit for your centre.

Because we’re a boutique agency, you’ll always get service with a personal touch from a team that cares.

And with extensive experience in Early Childhood, management & recruitment, our team is able to inherently understand your requirements.

Equal parts professional, experienced, and fun, our team shares a real passion for improving Early Childhood Services through matching the right people to the right teams and roles.
